"The Dark Ages" is a song recorded by Soulfly. It is played as the first track of the 2005 album Dark Ages. This 47-second dark ambient intro may remind listeners of being in a dark world while hammer-like sounds can be heard. The drums and guitar at the end of this track would set up for the next track "Babylon". Some Soulfly fans wish that this track should've been the intro part of "Babylon". Fans who have this song on their computer or on portable media devices could merge this intro into "Babylon" via audio editor software.
